Incoming emails- Encrypted password to be used with Rake task .

Added by Jai prakash over 5 years ago


I've configured redmine to accept incoming emails to create tickets. The rake task that I am running as a cron has the password for the receiving email entered as plain text . Instead can I use an encrypted password ? or is there any other method to securely give password ?

rake --trace redmine:email:receive_pop3 RAILS_ENV="production" port=110 username=
password={encrypted-password} project=myproject allow_override=tracker,status,description,priority,assignee,category
